I just got EPO today... and the only kind they had were softgels... Are these essentially the same thing as capsules? Can I still use them vaginally? Thanks!

No clue, but I would think they be fine. I know I read some people poked a hole with a pin in the gel before inserting. I don't think you'd have to if you didn't want to.

How much are you ladies taking per day? My friend is doing 1 1000mg orally in the morning, and 1 1000 mg vaginally at night. The bottle says take 3 1000mg per day with food.... lol.... I was just planning on using her regiment.

Yep, I have softgels. I haven't used them vaginally yet, though.
